Rocky Houston’s federal firearms trial has been postponed again. It was scheduled to start on Tuesday, but U.S. Magistrate C. Clifford Shirley Jr. granted another continuance last week.
Houston’s court-appointed attorney – Michael P. McGovern – filed a motion to withdraw from the case on Nov. 1.
Shirley reset a hearing on McGovern’s motion for Dec. 9 and moved the trial to Jan. 28.
Houston faces 14 counts of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, which could net him up to 140 years in prison if convicted.
